Gluten-Free Giveaway: Mary's Gone Crackers!

St_original_3x375_label May is National Celiac Disease Awareness Month and we have a few days left to celebrate! Mary's Gone Crackers would like to add to the occasion by giving you a FREE sample of their gourmet gluten-free crunchy snacks!

The first 100 people to email will get a free sample of the new Sticks & Twigs snacks AND a coupon for a free box of Mary's Gone Crackers regular crackers. You must enter "CeliacChicks" in your email subject line and the email must be sent before June 6th.

In case you haven't heard, Mary's Gone Crackers partnered with The Celiac Disease Foundation and released a checklist of symptoms related to celiac disease, which affects one in 133 adults and children. This means that more than three million Americans are estimated to have celiac disease! Unfortunately, only 3% of these have been properly diagnosed.

Some common symptoms of celiac disease include:

* Recurring bloating, gas, or abdominal pain
* Chronic diarrhea or constipation or both
* Unexplained weight loss or weight gain
* Pale, foul-smelling stool
* Unexplained anemia
* Bone or joint pain
* Migraine headaches
* Behavior changes/depression/irritability
* Vitamin K Deficiency
* Fatigue, weakness or lack of energy
* Delayed growth or onset of puberty
* Failure to thrive (in infants)
* Missed menstrual periods
* Infertility – Male/Female
* Spontaneous miscarriages
* Canker sores inside the mouth
* Tooth discoloration or loss of enamel

Anyone who can identify with one of more of the symptoms listed may have celiac disease and should consult a doctor for more thorough testing, which typically starts with a blood test. In addition, anyone who has been diagnosed or has a family member who has been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome,eczema, Sjögren's syndrome, Peripheral neuropathy, thyroid disease or osteoporosis may also be at risk.

The number of Celiacs is in fact greater than those with Crohn's Disease, Cystic Fibrosis, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's Disease combined.

Celiac Disease is one of the most common genetic conditions in the world that often goes undiagnosed because it is a multi-symptom, multi-system disorder. Symptoms vary and are not always gastrointestinal.


Us_original_2 Mary's Gone Crackers was founded in 1999 by Mary Waldner and Dale Rodrigues. Waldner was inspired to create Mary's Gone Crackers after she was finally diagnosed with Celiac Disease and had scoured store shelves for tasty foods that she and her son could enjoy. Mary's Gone Crackers is a line of delicious, gluten-free gourmet snacks that unite great taste with satisfying nutrition. Loaded with a variety of exotic whole grains and nutritious ingredients, Mary's Gone Crackers are organic, Kosher and gluten-free and contain no added oils, trans-fats, sugar or dairy. Current products include the original snack crackers in five delectable flavors as well as the new Sticks & Twigs, delicious stick-snacks that will be available this summer. Mary's Gone Crackers are available in natural and grocery stores nationwide. Mary's Gone Crackers are also available at Costco stores within the Pacific Northwest. For more information, please visit

Celiac Awareness Month is the perfect opportunity to shed some light on this widespread condition, and we are pleased to help educate people that there may be a name for the symptoms they thought they had to live with. I spent years trying to find the source of my digestive pain and fatigue and my son's migraines. I want others to know that they can achieve real health when
they avoid gluten containing foods. - Mary Waldner

Mary's Gone Crackers is a proud sponsor of the Celiac Disease Foundation.

This is so great...this website.
Thank You for providing us with valuable information.
You've made it both easy and fun at the same time.

Thanks for the compliment, Denise! I'm glad you are having fun! Enjoy your Sticks & Twigs! (sounds like something from an Austin Powers movie, eh?:)


got my free samples yesterday - yum!
thanks Kelly!

I got the free samples yesterday. The curry ones were yummy. I have not liked these crackers in the past, but now I will go get more.

Thank you, Celiac Chicks! I received my free crackers today here at the Grand Canyon North Rim. They look delish, I'll have one little bag of them for my afternoon snack today!

Oh, I had to come back here to say, I was eating the second of three bags of the delish Mary's Sticks & Twigs today, and happened to look closely at the back of the bag. There was a $1.00 off coupon on it. So, I looked at the last bag, and there is one on there too! I can't believe I threw the other one away! Y'all be sure to save those coupons!
